Winter Floraland

(Random walkies in Woy Woy)

Two posts today. This walkies one and one about the Paperbark Forest.

Golden dildo in full bloom. Don't know if this is a Banksia or a Hakea. I think you said hakea last time, Erica.

Casuarina in flower

These seem to be the flowers of the Casuarina tree. I've seen a few of them around the peninsula this winter. The trees look brown and like they're dying until you have a closer look. The needles are still green and there's this extra bit on the ends.

Cauarina tree in Veron Road Umina. The brown bits are it.


Pink kangaroo paw close-up

Pink kangaroo paws in someone's garden on Veron Road. Don't know if they naturally come pink or if they're one of the new cultivars.


Woy Woy Road still fucking closed

Woy Woy Road closure

This is the road yesterday's sign was all about. That fenced bit at the top edge of the road is the collapse. Sandstone blocks on the right, presumably to re-build the bit of hillside under the road that fell away.

The road goes from the station in Bustling Downtown Woy Woy along the railway line, over it, along Correa Bay (Deadmans Bay as was), up over Bulls Hill and past The Bays and up to the F3 motorway, the intercity freeway connecting Sydney to Newcastle.

The collapse is playing havoc with local traffic and causing blood pressure to rise all through The Bays.

not sure - some hakeas are very similar to banksias - whatever it is, it's a blooming big one!

In full bloom it was as thick as the proverbial beer can and a good twelve inches long.

*fans self*

Definitely a banksia. I'm pretty sure it's a Banksia Ericifolia.

The issues involving Buy Dildo Sydney has been a popular topic amongst scholars for many years. There are many factors which influenced the development of Buy Dildo Sydney. Indispensable to homosapians today, Buy Dildo Sydney is not given the credit if deserves for inspiring many of the world’s famous painters. Often it is seen as both a help and a hindrance to those most reliant on technology, who are likely to form a major stronghold in the inevitable battle for hearts and minds. At the heart of the subject are a number of key factors. I plan to examine each of these factors in detail and assess their importance.
